The house forms part of the historic street scene of Ditchling and when you step out of your front door you are right in the heart of the village. It is believed that the house dates back to circa 1725 and this lovely period home has accommodation arranged over three floors. Ditchling Village is a picturesque and quintessential English Village with some lovely independent shops, cafes and downland walks. The current seller has made a number of improvements during the time she has been there giving this period home that is full of character a modern, contemporary feel. Some of the specific improvements made include the new Alpha gas boiler, an amazing deVOL country style kitchen that is very much in-keeping with the style of the house and a stunning mural in the sitting room decorated by Mythical Land wallpaper by Kit Kemp for Andrew Martin.
The ground floor entrance hall provides access to the spacious ground floor double bedroom and cloakroom/wc. This would be ideal for an older child still at home or for guests visiting. The first floor is where you will find the main living space with a superbly thought out open plan kitchen/family room, sitting room , cloakroom and study/dressing room which could also be used as a comfortable den/snug. On the second floor you will find the main bedroom and two further bedrooms as well as the family bath/shower room.
The outside areas are a particular feature of this house with a variety of different areas for entertaining, socialising or simply relaxing. There is a central block paved courtyard as well as a galleried walkway with a garden laid to lawn. Brick arched stores can be found at the rear of the terrace providing useful extra storage and there is a further brick arched studio which would be great for anyone needing to work from work home as it has light and power. There is an integral garage with an electronic door that accesses the courtyard.
Situated in the very heart of the picturesque downland village of Ditchling, West Street is close to the wide variety of local shops, including arts and craft workshops, a museum and Post Office and The Nutmeg Tree tea rooms.
